I really wish instead of having to take care of a mock child they had kids try to hatch a lizard or chicken. They can candle the eggs every day and watch the fetus develop, and then if someone wants to know what an abortion is the teacher can crack an egg open and have the class see the chick die. That’s what an abortion is, folks. It’s not removing a tumor. It’s ripping a living being out of it’s egg and watching it die. The only difference is that humans develop in their mothers, not in an egg. Other than that it’s the same thing.

You’ve never hatched chickens before have you?
Fetuses, whether chicks or poults or baby humans have to develop in a specific set of conditions. If these conditions are not met, the baby dies. I remember my biology teacher trying to have children with the assistance of fertility drugs and at least one of the attempts ended in a miscarriage. The body needs to be in a specific state in order to support a child; if even the hormones are off it can cause a miscarriage. That’s not God taking away children; that’s just how biology works. Sometimes it just doesn’t work, and while it’s extremely tragic when a pregnancy ends in a miscarriage it can’t just be contributed to divine forces. Sometimes there’s a genetic defect, or a bacterial infection, or in the case of chickens and other animals that hatch from eggs the temperature or humidity is off. Any number of things can kill a fetus in development.

Well you can’t say he’s lying entirely. Just a half truth. Sure you could drink a quart of it and it probably won’t do any permanent damage to you. But it WILL make you really sick.
He should of said it won’t kill you if you drink it. To be honest though that would be weird if you could drink a glass of herbicide like water and expect it to both work on weeds and have no effect on you. Poison just doesn’t work like that.

I wonder how they do that? Do they boost certain colors so a colorblind person can see them? I know a lot of color blind people have a deficiency of certain cones that allow them to see a specific color like red or green. Makes me wonder what the image would look like if a normal person looked through the glasses…
It looks like they reduce the level of colors they can see and pass the colors they have problems with. I suspect what is special is that they are very selective about which color they pass and block where as normal sun glasses block everything. It might be a very special pigment that only absorbs certain colors and leaves the other alone.
wiltsie -- That is pretty much correct. Actually, they also block out some of the overlapping frequencies so that colors are "purer" and thus easier for people with some types of colorblindness to see.

You mean synesthesia? I’ve heard of it. You hear music or see letters and associate colors or sounds with them. I have it somewhat; I hear sounds from instruments and I end up associating them with colors; like a clarinet or oboe sounds purple, chimes sound blue… it’s hard to explain to someone who doesn’t have it, but you hear sounds and add colors to them. It adds an extra layer of enjoyment to music because the colors blend together like a painting.

Popular 1980s pastime? Super Mario Bros, as well as Legend of Zelda, are still very popular today. People have been gaming SINCE the 80s, it never just ended after that. I get the feeling The Blaze just isn’t into video games at all…
(On topic, Nintendo isn’t gonna just lend their games onto smartphones. They may be planning to put those characters in games for smartphones, but you’re still not playing Super Mario Bros. 3 without an emulator.)

Very little in fact; our stomach naturally produces hydrochloric acid, which is strong enough to dissolve solid rock. By the time the cola is digested there’s very little left that could even have a slight effect on the body.
I respectfully disagree, Mewnani. Most of today's headlines on the Blaze made my blood boil, this story might have a slight fluff factor to it but i welcome it, I needed a break. Besides i think Swift is classy, why not do a story on her.

And... apparently you clicked away. So, now what's your gripe?

There’s been a lot of those lately. Where are they coming from and who’s calling them?

Anybody who says a fetus is nothing but a lump of tissue has never hatched eggs before. You can candle them each day and even from the first day they’re alive. Heck you can look in there and see the eyes, the head, the body, and sometimes even see it moving. It’s a chick and absolutely nothing else, and the same principle applies with a human baby. If they were in eggs you’d be able to watch them grow as a chick does, just more slowly.
Life-long liberal, now conservative David Mamet, says leftists pretend not to understand things. They really do understand. It's a game. They want to commit murder with society's blessing.

Ain’t a heartbeat detectible just a few hours in? How people can look at that and think “kill it!” is beyond me. They have to be possessed by some kind of demon; it’s like candling an egg and seeing the little chick inside and throwing the egg away, smashing it into the wall.
They want it gone. Abortionists and former abortionists say - We all know it's a human life.
It's far worse than that, because the chicken is created and maintained as food and has no chance of ever being much better than that. Just doesn't compare to a human being.

You looked at that and thought that too? I thought of that scene in Prometheus.
It’s really neat to look at though; it reminds me of a chick growing in an egg. The inside of the egg ends up like that.

The main problem is the peaceful kids there are far outweighed by another group that wants to do harm to others. Even if these kids genuinely wanted to stand up for the synagogue (which I believe they did) they’re outnumbered and outgunned. I hope the bad guys don’t find out who they are; they won’t hesitate to kill them for this.

The water melted around the shape of the jeep and froze quickly enough to maintain the jeep’s shape. It’s naturally made because humans didn’t create it.

So if you ingest this compound in much higher doses over the course of your lifetime than is normal and regularly possible, you might get lung cancer. Who the heck got lung cancer off drinking soda? 80% of people who get it either smoked or were exposed to secondhand smoke. This is just a cherry-picked study trying to scare people.
Mewnani- since discovering the gene that actually causes lung cancer, the scholarship (well, outside the AMA-controlled US) on lung cancer has changed dramatically.
The second-hand smoke research was always based on the (now found to be flawed) presumption of the causal link between smoking and lung cancer. The 80% figure is bogus; in any case, correlation and causality are very different levels of evidence.
Do people with the gene for lung cancer smoke more than the general population? Yes they do. Do people who never smoked at all get lung cancer? Yes they do.
Inconvenient truths indeed . . . however, it will take an actual genetic "cure" for lung cancer before the medical establishment int he USA to admit they jumped the gun a wee bit back when they drew the causal arrow between smoking and lung cancer. Kinda got it backwards.

Wow, the irony. We have an article about how to stay invisible on the internet on a website filled with every means known to man designed to ferret out who you are, what your shopping habits are, hijack your browser and be dang near unusable without a bunch of Firefox addons. This site is a mess of ads and the mobile version is unusable because of said ads. In short, staying invisible is impossible on this site.
amen- because of all the bullshit advertising constantly loading and moving and changing i can never watch anything on this site
Hhmmm...I can only give 1 thumbs up, sorry.
Downside is you have to disable certain a add-on to comment on the Blaze...
I never see any ads here anymore. I used to, but not now. Don't know why unless it's because I use an older Mac with an older OS.
 February 18, 2015 at 12:59pm
Well the story does say COMMENTARY on the category the story’s in before you click on it. This naturally means the author’s OPINIONS on a story with some factual evidence included in the article. It’s your fault you expected anything other than that.

I’d choose a kid acting like himself over some roboticized child taking medication getting perfect grades. You can’t just drug a kid up because you want better grades! You can’t gauge a kid if he has a disorder because his grades aren’t high enough! Ain’t it normal that kids generally don’t like sitting in a classroom for 6 hours a day and naturally don’t pay attention to things they don’t like? There’s better ways to get a child to make better grades in school than hopping him up on medication that might damage him later.

As a child I actually was diagnosed with this; the doctors at the kindergarten I used to attend assumed I had the disease due to being a hyperactive little child who liked to run around all over the place and wanted me to take medication for it. My mother responded by pulling me out and putting me into another school, and I did well. I’m still pretty hyper as an adult, but there’s no way I’d be myself without the tendency to go on mental tangents and occasionally go nuts in a fit of writing or composing music.
I know a guy that actually needs the medication for it, and he needs the medicine or else he can’t function. I think the disease definitely does exist in some form, but the people that get mistaken for it far outweigh the ones that have it, and that’s not a good thing. If it were up to them, they’d have me take medicine that I didn’t need, and they still make kids take medicine they don’t need either simply because they want better grades or want the kid to be less annoying. I hope it stops; this stuff can ruin kids, and it’s meant only for people who desperately need it, not just any hyper little kid off the street.
Several years ago, 18-24 month old children started being diagnosed with ADHD because they couldn't stay on task for long. Hello! that's the age appropriate behavior.
The military won't enlist anyone who has been on ADHD meds and the meds also cause many medical problems.
I had a friend in college that was hyper. He said the school treated it themselves and served the kids coffee every morning (works as a depressant in children, like prescription speed, but safer)

She’s a child who mentally is a lot younger than she really is, and is nuts. To her, they are. It’s heartbreaking; this kid is just broken.
